We are lucky in the fact that Chamberlain is a small school, yet can still offer students the amenities that larger schools offer.

It's wonderful because all the teachers work very hard to give the kids individualized attention which is a rarity in this day and age!

CHS has the most amazing music and drama department I've ever seen! The teachers are so dedicated and talented and share not just their classroom time to teach, but also much of their free time. The results are astounding: Nearly every year, Trisha Burke leads the way in the state finals for drama, Mr. Carlson's band plays beautifully and many have gone to state, and Mrs. Stryzewski's choir sing like angels! This is all done in a town of about 2400 people. Shows what a person can do when their heart is in the right place!

Chamberlain High School exceeds in many qualities. The teachers all know what they are doing and are all very active in the students lives. The teachers are all willing to help students in many different areas, including councelling, teaching, learning, etc.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 South Dakota used the Dakota State Test of Educational Progress (Dakota STEP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in reading and math. The Dakota STEP is standards-based, which means it is aligned to South Dakota's educational standards and measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state. The standards-based Dakota STEP results are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
